LOGO_vertOne of the most difficult and time-consuming jobs is for an employer (i.e. recruiter, staffing agency, contracting firm) to perform a technical screening of a candidate. In order to simplify this problem, MyVirtualBench, a new recruiting platform currently in beta, has developed a candidate screening process right inside their platform. Each candidate has the opportunity to take a skills assessment based on the technical specialty. This process enables future employers to analyze and assess the knowledge of the candidate. Additionally they can quickly compare which available candidate has the strongest knowledge in said specialty.

Correct assessment of Job Applications

It is still early, but MyVirtualBench has already proven to be quite beneficial for human resources departments, information security managers, and internal recruiters. It can be used to swiftly and efficiently analyze the skills of applicants.

The benefits received from this include:

  • Time saving and cost saving.
  • Reduces administrative work load considerably.
  • Highlights any training needs to enhance the capabilities of the staff

Analyzing the skills of the social Security Team

The Skills Assessment feature has the capacity to meet a number of objectives namely:

  • Talent management
  • Succession planning
  • Mapping training requirements

Use Cases

Test the Skills of your Contractor

The purpose of bringing in a contractor is to perform urgent projects, which cannot be completed by the existing staff due to skill deficiency. The problem, however, is that sometimes the contractors may prove to be incompetent. In order to avoid this problem the contractor’s skills can efficiently be analyzed through the skills assessment module on MyVirtualBench. This tool allows you to compare the skills of different contractors and allows you to make the right choice.

External Recruiters

The purpose of external recruiters is to beat their competition and provide higher value to their clients by providing better candidates. This objective is easily met by utilizing the skills assessment module on MyVirtualBench. Providing the desired edge to external recruiters!
